Pragtige uitsig op die see.

Die ligging is uitstekend. Die uitsig oor die see onverbeterlik - veral vanaf die ontbytarea. Die ontbyt besonder heerlik. Die gashere is baie vriendelik. Ek het wel verwag dat die kamer ietwat luukser gaan wees.

Dolfyne, walvisse, 'n enorme ontbyt, mooiste uitsig, en dit was net vir 'n dag! Wens ons het langer gebly!

Mooi uitsig uit kamer in 'n mooi deel van die land. Vreemd (dalk lekker?) sonder 'n veiligheidshek by kamerdeur.

Gastehuise met helder buiteligte deur die nag. Moet tog maar belê in "block out" by die gordyne. Die ligte maak die kamer skemer regdeur die nag - veral met dit wit gordyne. So "block out" wat mens kan toetrek sou goed werk. Veiligheidshek of Trellidoor is noodsaaklik - sou graag met deur wou oop slaap vir seelug en -klank maar bietjie versigtig. As mense onder ander kamer slaap met houtvloere dan hoor mens nogal bewegings en skuiwe en skoene wat val. Maar kan seker nie nota los vir hulle om bedagsaam te wees nie. Die kamer was goed ingerig. TV is 'n ander storie - kon dit nie aan die werk kry nie, maar seker omdat ek nie Openview verstaan nie - geen nota oor hoe dit werk nie.

Translate to English.

Nice view from the room in a nice part of the country. Strange (maybe nice?) without a security gate at room door.

Guesthouses with bright exterior lights throughout the night. Should invest in "block out" at the curtains. The lights make the room dim throughout the night - especially with those white curtains. So "block out" that one can pull would work well. Safety gate or Trellidoor is essential - would like to sleep with door open for sea air and sound but a little careful. If people sleep under another room with wooden floors, then you hear quite a lot of movements and moves and shoes falling. But probably can't leave note for them to be considerate. The room was well appointed. TV is another story - couldn't get it to work but probably because I don't understand Openview - no note on how it works.

Fantastiese gastehuis wat moeite doen om die gaste spesiaal te laat voel.

Pragtige uitsig. Heerlike ontbyt wat keurig voorgesit word. Die kamer was pragtig. Eienaar het baie moeite gedoen om in elke behoefte te voorsien - heerlike linne met 'n strikkie om die handdoeke. Vars vrugte in die kamer. Alle toiletbenodighede wat jy nodig het. Ons het heerlik gebly.

Fantastic guest house that makes an effort to make the guests feel special.

Beautiful view. Delicious breakfast that is carefully served. The room was beautiful. Owner has gone to great lengths to cater for every need - lovely linen with a bow around the towels. Fresh fruit in the room. All the toiletries you need. We had a wonderful stay.

Teleurgesteld en nie die prys per nag werd nie.

Was veronderstel om die hoogtepunt van ons wittebrood te wees met die duurste kamer per nag, was toe die swakste verblyf van ons 6 plekke waar ons geslaap het. Kamer was vuil en het instandhouding nodig, minimale geriewe beskikbaar.

Disappointed and not worth the price per night.

Was supposed to be the highlight of our honeymoon with the most expensive room per night, then turned out to be the worst stay of our 6 places we slept. Room was dirty and in need of maintenance, minimal amenities available.

Ongelooflike tydjie gehad tydens ons vakansie in die Wildernis.

Die gasvryheid van die eienaars was uitstekend. Hulle doen baie moeite om 'n mens 'n goeie kuier te bied tydens 'n moeilike tyd vir die bedryf. Hulle ontbyt is uit die boonste rakke en hul aandag aan detail is verstommend. Hulle laat jou voel asof dit jou eie huis is by die see.

Die ontvangs was hartlik en mens voel dadelik tuis. Die personeel is baie opreg en diens-personeel vriendelik.

Die kamer was netjies en die bed slaap lekker. Die ontbyt is goed voorberei en genoeg om 'n mens die heel dag te hou. Die uitsig vanaf die balkon/dek is ongelooflik alhoewel dit 'n ent se stap see toe is.

Awesome stay for 3 nights, home away from home.

I highly recommend Whales Way. We stayed for 3 nights, and I would like to compliment the staff. They were friendly and have a high standard of excellence but what I would like to commend them on is: Its one thing to have a high standard of service but they just went out of there way to accommodate us in the extra unexpected. I highly recommend this B&B.

Swak diens.

Die plek is 'n totale teleurstelling vir die prys. Ons het 'n kamer gehuur en geen voordeel van die gastehuis bekom nie. Die plek is gesluit sodat 'n mens nie die sitkamer of kombuis kan benut nie. Die jacuzzi kan nie benut word nie want die huis is gesluit. Gaste wat ons besoek het moes in die kamer kuier want die huis was gesluit. Die kamer was elke dag eers na 13h00 gediens. Die plankvloer van die boonste verdieping veroorsaak dat ons die heel dag en laat in die nag gepla was deur die geraas. Die lawaai van die waskamer langs ons kamer was ook n probleem.

Poor service.

This place is a total disappointment for the price. We booked a room and didn't receive any benefits from the guesthouse. The place is locked so that one can not make use of the lounge or the kitchen. The Jacuzzi can also not be used because the house is locked. Our guests who came to visit us, had to sit in the room because the house was locked. The room was only serviced after 13:00 every day. The wooden floors on the top floor caused us to lie awake til late because of the noise. The noise from the washing room next door was also a problem.

Hallo Mnr Fourie

Ons is baie jammer om te verneem na u negatiewe ervaring gedurende die Desember vakansie hier by Whales Way en kan u teleurstelling verstaan indien u met sekere verwagtinge uitgesien het na u paar dae op vakansie. Juis om die spesifieke rede sal ek graag wil verduidelik dat u miskien verkeerd aangeneem het dat van die geriewe in 'n gastehuis ook vir gaste se gebruik is. Ons bied ongelukkig nie selfsorg geriewe aan nie en die kombuis is nie beskikbaar vir gaste nie. Daar is wel 'n yskas en geriewe om koffie en tee te maak in die kamer. Die sitkamer en dek area is deur die dag, en tot redelik laat saans, beskikbaar vir ons gaste se ontspanning, en om die uitsig te geniet, maar, soos u gesien het, bly ons bestuurderes op die perseel 'in' die huis en vir haar veiligheid word deure op 'n sekere tyd toegemaak, gewoonlik hier by 22:00. Ons is so bietjie onseker oor u stelling oor die Jacuzzi aangesien dit in die tuin is en nie in die huis nie en heeldag toeganklik is. Indien u dit dalk later die aand wou gebruik het as die huis klaar gesluit was, kon u net reëlings tref met die bestuurderes en sy sou enige tyd dit vir u vooraf aangesit het.

Ons vra om verskoning vir enige ongerief wat veroorsaak was dat u kamer die een dag eers teen 13:00 skoongemaak was, maar soos u gesien het, is daar net een persoon wat kamers skoonmaak en al 3 kamers en die 2 Penthouse Suites was heeltemal vol. Meeste van ons gaste is deur die dag uit om die area te geniet, maar ons probeer nog steeds om voor middagete die kamers gereed te kry.

Ons is regtig jammer u het nie tydens u besoek u probleem met die gaste bo u, en die waskamer langs u, met ons bespreek nie. Ons sou definitief kon vra dat hulle hoflik moet wees en kon plan maak met die geraas van die waskamer. Ons het vooraf met u korrespondeer dat die Eden kamer, teen 'n laer tarief as al die kamers, 'in' die huis geleë is.

Ons verstaan ook dat u 'n probleem gehad het met 'bobotie en pampoenkoekies' vir ontbyt in die oggende. Die 'ekstra gourmet disse wat Leoni, ons bestuurderes voorberei het al van vroegoggend af, was net 'n ekstra bederf en deel van die hele Ontbyt Buffet wat bestaan het uit 'n groot verskeidenheid kontinentale en warm disse. Dit was 'n hoogtepunt vir meeste van die gaste en ek is jammer u het dit nie so ondervind nie.

Alhoewel ons regtig hard probeer om deur al ons besprekings kanale presies vir ons gaste te kommunikeer wat hulle kan verwag - sal ons weer deur al ons presiese bewoording gaan om te voorkom dat sekere verwagtinge geskep word wat ons ongelukkig nie in kan voldoen nie.

Nogtans dankie dat u dit onder ons aandag gebring het.

Groete

Dit was 'n asemrowende mooi uitsig en pragtige plek.

Die gastehuis lewer uitstekende diens, personeel is vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Ontbyt was goed voorberei. Kamers is stylvol en baie netjies. Sal vir seker weer daar bespreek.

Excellent location, great view, large room and good breakfast - however this establishment seems to be 'run to failure' (definitely in need of TLC)

Many examples of building neglect, poorly maintained garden, loose curtains, damaged blinds, etc. Very poorly stocked bar fridge, no complimentary water, jet-bath not working, some lights not working, etc. Given the cost of accommodation this was an overall disappointment.

Whales Way Ocean Retreat 's response

Good day Sir - We really appreciate your reply, but would like to bring it under your attention that the establishment is now under new management and a lot of upgrades and maintenance has been done in the mean while - hope you give us a chance to show off the renovations.

Kind regards,
Whales Way Management

Nie wat ons verwag het nie.

Baie mooi uitsig en die kamer was netjies en ruim. Die plek kort egter aandag en personeel moet ook aandag aan sekere detail gee. Groot kol/vlek op die mat. Badkamer se skakelaar werk nie. Seephouers vir beide stort en wasbakke was leeg. TV het net 4 kanale met goeie beeld, en meeste van die tyd het die gasvrou wat ook daar woon die kanaal verander in die middel van 'n program. Opsomming: nie 'n slegte plek nie, my ervaring is dat daar ander plekke in die area is wat meer waarde vir geld bied.

Not what we expected.

Very nice view and the room was neat and spacious. However, the place needs attention and staff also need to pay attention to certain details. Large spot/stain on the carpet. Bathroom switch not working. Soap dispensers for both shower and sinks were empty. TV only has 4 channels with a good picture, and most of the time the hostess who also lives there changed the channel in the middle of a program. Summary: not a bad place, my experience is that there are other places in the area that offer more value for money.

Hierdie is die plek om heen te gaan as jy wil rus!

Lieflike luukse verblyf, hier kan jy ontspan en heeldag net vir die see sit en kyk of in die Jacuzzi lê. Vroegoggend 'n groot ontbyt op die dek geniet op die sonskyndae. Jy hoef oor niks bekommerd te wees met 'n gasvrou soos Leonie nie! Heerlik, sal beslis weer gaan!

This is the place to go if you want to rest!

Lovely, luxury accommodation. You can sit and relax while you admire the sea view, or just chill in the Jacuzzi. A big breakfast is served on the deck early in the morning on sunny days. You don't have to worry with a hostess like Leonie! Lovely, we will definitely go again!
